Lo-Mustang, the capital is walled city ruled by religious king. Untouched by modern civilization, life in Mustang goes on as it has for centuries in unhurried place. As everywhere in the Himalayas, this area provides spectacular mountain scenery. The ancient walking track and trade route takes visitors and locals alike through the world’s most forbidden and isolated region.
For nine years, starting in 1951 when Nepal officially opened her borders, foreigners could visit Mustang. Thereafter, from 1960 until 1991, the kingdom was closed once more. During difficult decades 60s & 70s, the upper reaches of the Mustang valley were completed sealed off to outsiders. In 1991, rather unexpectedly, the Nepalese government reopened Mustang to a limited quota of foreign visitors. The special permit to this region USD700/first 10 days and USD70/days onward.
It worth to go to that amazing region. The Tiji Festival in middle of May is one of the most attractive activity there.
